Memorial Day Weekend 2007

I was trying to think of some way to honor those who have given their lives for our country, and while I think the following photo provides the kind of introspective reminder of how personal the loss is of those who fought and died for our country, we also need to remember the ongoing sacrifices made to keep our nation safe. With that in mind, I've posted a number of clips showing some of our nation's finest soldiers, sailors, and Marines doing precision maneuvers with either their rifles or in their aircraft.

Blackfive does a far better job of writing about Memorial Day than I did. (HT Confederate Yankee)
